With FIFA 22 Ultimate Team reaching its final stages as European leagues are nearing their endgame, EA Sports has implemented new cards to inject some life into the game, including Showdown items.
These dynamic cards can be upgraded if the team of the player involved gets a positive result in their designated match. In total, they'll get a +1 OVR if they draw and a +2 if it's a win. For the next Showdown SBC, the devs have selected Gabriel Paulista to represent Valencia.
The 31-year-old hasn't had a stellar career, however, he cemented himself as a somewhat reliable defensive unit for Europe's mid-level squads. After signing for Villarreal in 2013, Paulista was poached by Arsenal two seasons later, in what could've been the start of his rise in European football.
Instead, the Brazilian flopped massively in the Premier League, opting for a return to LaLiga with Valencia in 2017, where he's become a pillar of Los Che, helping them win the 2019 Copa del Rey.
